Budget Headset

I'm looking for a good headset under $150 for gaming. I have my eyes set on the Steelseries Arctis Pro but I want to hear from people some other recommendations.

The Sennheiser PX37x would be a good bet. Otherwise, you could look at the HD 559/579/598/599 and add a modmic depending on what you could get them for. They dip around or below $99 during sales all the time especially the 559 and 579.
If you are willing to sacrifice the in-line mic, the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro is the best headset for gaming. MSRP is $199, but you can easily find them on sale for $150 and eBay routinely has them refurbished for $100. But, if you need a mic, the Corsair Void Pro, Razer Kraken, Razer Nari, Arctis Pro, HyperX Cloud Revolver, and Turtle Beach Elite Pro are all great.
Your primary recommendation is $50 over his budget, and he'd still have to buy a mic. All of those headsets are bested by the HyperX Cloud Alpha for $99. Eliminating the electronics makes it more durable, and anything is better than Razer and Turtle Beach QC.
If you actually cared to read the post, you would see that I specifically mentioned that the DT 990 Pros go on sale for under $150 regularly and you can find them refurbished on eBay for $100. Yes, maybe the Razers and Turtle Beach aren't the best, but I was just giving options. Plus, the Cloud Revolvers and Void Pros beat the Cloud Alphas handily in my opinion.
